They’re Great Care-taking Practice
Millennials have helped drive a boom in the houseplant industry, according to the National Gardening Association. Giving them a houseplant can boost their confidence in greenery, which can extend to outdoor landscaping or vegetable gardening with their first home. Plants also offer a dip-your-toes-in taste of care-taking and nurturing that can expand to pets — and beyond.
Plant Pick: Herbs
Inspire a green thumb and a love of family traditions by pairing a few favorite recipes with a gift of herbs plants, such as chives, basil and oregano. You can also find a starter kit with seeds. Ensure any included pots can fit in a sunny-but-handy location, such as a kitchen window, for fresh-snipped flavors when cooking and carrying family traditions forward.
